Nigel Brown Competition

JG records the audio for a DVD recording of the 2008 Nigel Brown Competition, University of Cambridge.

The annual competition, sponsored by Nigel Brown, was recorded this year by Jonathan Green (audio) and Keir Williams (video).

The performances were mostly solo instrument/voice and piano, and piano solo. The biggest challenge was to do a good recording without being too intrusive with the microphones (this was a concert).

The Centre for Music and Science, where JG works, generously loaned some very nice microphones (Neumanns and DPAs), which no doubt helped to achieve the high sound quality.

Keir expertly filmed the competition with a couple of high definition Sony cameras.
